First Fridays for Families

Columbus Area Arts Council Presents Old National Bank’s First Fridays for Families. Friday, March 6, 2015, 6:00 PM, The Commons, FREE

First Fridays for Families Features Wacky Chad!

Prepare to laugh until it hurts with stunt comedian Wacky Chad at Old National Bank’s First Fridays for Families on Friday, March 6 at 6:00 PM in The Commons. All First Fridays for Families programs are free thanks to generous financial support from Old National Bank. Additional funding for this program is provided by the Nugent, Custer, and Teegarden Foundations.

For more than a decade, Wacky Chad has made thousands of people laugh at schools, fairs, festivals, theaters, colleges and universities all over the world. His award winning pogo stick skills, charmingly funny jokes and antics got him on America’s Got Talent (twice!) and a performance at the 2014 Super Bowl.

“This guy is a riot” said Karen Shrode, the arts council’s executive director. “Physical comedy is so much fun to watch and there’s no doubt that Wacky Chad has perfected his tricks. Nevertheless, we’re glad he wears a crash helmet!”

Sponsored by Old National Bank, First Fridays for Families is a free arts program that focuses on enriching the lives of young children by highlighting the performing arts. All First Fridays for Families programs begin at 6:00 PM on the first Friday of each month from November through April and are held in the Nugent Custer Performance Hall in The Commons in downtown Columbus.
